I believe this helps us in trying to overcome them in the standings!
The way Burke's been playing, we're almost better off with him healthy.
edit: Burke's last five starts 4.08GAA Sv% .856
Then again though, Grahame's five starts since the Olympics: 5.55GAA Sv%.789
So I guess it's slightly better having him start. I think his confidence might be a little shot after losing the starting job to Dipietro. If he starts against us, it could go two ways. Either he comes out with an axe to grind and plays great, or he over thinks it and plays horribly. If it's the latter, there's a good chance he'll play Tampa out of the playoffs.
